The German dream of being an important colonial power is reflected in street names in the "African Quarter" in Berlin's Wedding district. For decades, people fought to have them named after African resistance fighters. Supported by Basel and Berlin activists, Geneva theatre-maker Cedric Djedje tells of his personal search for traces, but also of clubbing, discrimination and online dating. A critical portrait of the city through the lens of an outsider between political documentary theatre and humorous autofiction.
